Our party of 6 was very disappointed with our meals and with the service here, especially after hearing great things about it. The salsa bar had only ONE kind of salsa, which I liked (it was sweet, with lots of cilantro), but the other 5 in our group insisted was made with ketchup. They were out of many menu items... More

There are not many places to eat in Forks, especially later in the evening. While this place looks a bit sketchy outside and inside, the food is not too bad. You sorta get what you pay for here, so don't come in with huge expectations. If you don't want to starve - go, if you want a more upscale dining... More

We usually don’t judge a book by it’s cover, but I think we should have here. The dining room was dingy and cold - not very inviting for eating a meal so we ordered for takeout. When we got home and opened our meals, we found that none of the fixings were included. Basically two ‘dry’ platters ready to consume.... More

I wrote a very positive review of this place a few months ago and we recently returned to the Forks are with some friends and was eager to return to this place to show it off to my friends. That turned out to be a disaster! We decided to order take out as we had rented a lovely cabin on... More

Kind of average food and service -- a bit pricey for what you get. Not a bad choice if you have a hankering for Mexican. Seemed pretty busy but so was "The In Place" which was terrible.

This place is awful. Tasteless food. Paint peeling off the walls and a grubby feel to the place. There is simply no where decent to eat in Forks. I strong recommend to bring your own food or drop into the local superstore Thriftway (which is actually a really good store with so much under one roof).

First when you walk in you might think twice about coming in. But do get over that. The menu hangs on the wall and has a large selection of the freshest Mexican food you will ever eat. Most Mexican food is prepared ahead of time and just placed together. Here they cook the chicken and beef per order and it... More

The food was fantastic! Cooked to order, great flavor, seemed fresh and authentic, nice staff. Love the use of real avocado. Good value, the portions weren't overwhelming, but the prices were completely reasonable. Doesn't look like much, but it's got a nice vibe. Had a Mexican program on the TV, that's always fun. There were a lot of fun sauces... More

If you drove or walked past, you'd probably just keep on going, and that would be a mistake. Even inside, you might be inclined to turn around and walk out -- it is not fancy inside, and that is charitable. This is not a "Fine Dining" experience. By the way, the name is Santa Ana (see pic). So, why then,... More
